Outsider
6/2/2021

I feel like I see the world as an outsider

All the time I have to watch from other’s eyes

Is it outside looking in, hoping to see

To feel

To be included

I feel so alone

Like no one wants me

I can’t go out without feeling sad

I see all these couples

All these families

All the kids

It makes me want all these things

I feel like I’ll never have any of it

Sitting there yearning for something that will never be.

Feeling sad and desperate

Thinking “why me?”

Why does it happen

Why can’t I be happy.
